2017 to 2018


The year 2017 has been a funny year which whizzed by as soon as we landed in January and no doubt 2018 will do the same.

The year started off badly with my anxiety getting the better of me and I ended up in hospital and then I lost my job at the end of 2017. On the brighter side I now ready for some new beginnings and the new year is a good excuse for a fresh start.

I have made a few new years resolutions, if you didn’t read my last blog, my first one was to keep up to date with my emails as they do get out of hand, second is to lose some weight as I have put on some extra pounds, so keep up to date with my fitness and last to film again for my Youtube channel.

I think cutting them down to four makes it more easier to follow and achieve.

How was your 2017?

What are your resolutions for the new year ahead?

I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Relieved about Christmas


It is two days since Christmas and I can already feel the relief that this year is all done. Well almost. Next it will be new years.

I try to avoid the shops this time of year because how busy it all gets, just too many people, and a lot of rushing around.

I just want to take it easy post Christmas and make the most of the time I have with my family and husband.

I also like to have like I do from Autumn to spring is have a clear out. Today it was clearing out my inbox to one of my google email accounts. It just gets so out of hand.

It feels good to have a clear out and I have decided, my first new years resolution, to go through my emails weekly and have regular clear out so it doesn’t pile up. I will be making more resolutions as I get nearer to the new year.

So how do you feel after Christmas? Are you like me and relieved?

Do you make new years resolutions? what are they?

I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Christmas is upon us


It is the 21st of December and not being smug, and not trying to cause alarm to others, but I am all set for the festive cheer.

Christmas prezzies all bought and taken over to nannies and all there is left is to drive over on Christmas Day, to stay at my mums for Christmas.

I have been enjoying watching a film of an evening whilst snuggled up in bed.

Watched an old classic yesterday “Romance In The Stone” Starring Micheal Douglas.

Not sure what is on tonight but I hope there is a classic film on.

I enjoyed the strictly come dancing final, and was surprised by the winner, but definitely deserved.

I was a bit miffed with the final of the apprentice. It should have been one winner not both and was a cop out in my book.

I am loving the new song by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds- Holy Mountain.

Great song, my song for this part of the year and one I have not stopped playing.

What is your song for this part of the year that you have heard? I would love to hear from you.

Looking forward to when the new series of The Voice, Ollie Muirs will be joining the coaching panel this year. Will be interesting.

Then we will be heading into a new year, so I will post again during the week to summon up 2017 before reflecting on the new year ahead.

So until then have a good Christmas and I will post as we head into the new year.

Many thanks for reading,
